Message length 300 characters recommended

Mongolian spots are flat, skin markings (or birth marks) of blue or blue-gray color that appear at or shortly after birth near the buttocks, on the shoulders, at the base of the spine, or on other body parts. They're common among people of Asian, African and East Indian descent.

Because of their coloring, it's easy to mistake them for bruising so it's important that if your child is born with one, it's recorded by the pediatrician in your child's records.
